Turkey, Cranberry & Goat Cheese Quesadilla

Serves: 1

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend! The weather was a bit cloudy here and I have been feeling slightly under the weather, but it was still a nice weekend! Not feeling so great forced me to just relax, watch a few movies and catch up on some much needed sleep! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t complain about that, right?

Today’s recipe is one that I shared on Instagram a few weeks back! The demand for the recipe was so high, I figured I would make an official post! So, pardon the pictures, but they are of my actual meal right before I dive into it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have made this quesadilla about 6-7 more times (including yesterday) since the first time I shared it! It is soooo delicious with the sweet and savory flavors! It really hits the spot! I hope you enjoy it! Have a great Monday!

  • Although I'm not a fan of goat cheese (I know I know.. its almost like I"m breaking a sin), I already decided I would replace it w/ feta =). Have a fantastic day, Sarah!

  • I LOVE quesadillas and there is honestly no wrong way to make one! I think you can throw anything into a tortilla and it will taste good. It was rainy in Houston too, so I decided to be lazy, take a nap, watch football, and do some food prep. It was fabulous. :)
